Man Sentenced to Felony Probation in Death of Girlfriend
Press release from the District Attorney’s Office:
In the same courtroom [Thursday] 32-year-old Zachary Glascoe of Arcata was sentenced to felony probation for Gross Vehicular Manslaughter While Intoxicated (Penal Code Section 191.5(a)). Mr. Glascoe pled guilty to the charge on July 5, 2016.
On September 7, 2013, Mr. Glascoe, who had a prior conviction for driving under the influence in 2007, was driving recklessly while under the influence of methamphetamine, lost control of his vehicle and collided with another vehicle. The collision killed Mr. Glascoe’s passenger, his 28-year-old girlfriend Jane Goodearle.
The Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office argued for a prison sentence for the defendant.
In granting probation, the judge ordered the defendant to participate in Drug Court. Mr. Glascoe has been in jail since May 1, 2015 when he was arrested on the warrant for failing to appear in court on this case. To receive probation Mr. Glascoe waived all his jail credits for the time served. Therefore, if he violates probation he will be facing a potential sentence of 10 years in prison.
